Tokyo Marathon 2023 featured the "Tokyo Marathon Post-Race Party" for the first time in the history in the outer garden area of the Imperial Palace.
On the same day of the race, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., a running clinic for kids, the Green Mileage 50m Run Challenge, and an on-stage talk show were held. Some kitchen cars ware also set up and used as a spot for runners to rest on the grass area after finishing the race and for families to come and play on the Palace lawns.
